A Community Asset
We are proud to be part of the local community in and around Amersham.
Music making within a group has many positive aspects, it is fun, reduces stress, encourages social interaction, and can inspire people to take action to change their lives. Our plans for Amersham Band will extend the accessibility of learning music throughout the local community, in particular to young people and senior citizens.
The band is a not-for-profit, volunteer based organisation, relying on its members and the local community to fund activities. Although financially self-supporting, we are dependent on grants and donations to be able to continue the long heritage of performing for the enjoyment of local people, supporting community events and connecting with local social support groups. If you would like to support or help the band in any way, then please contact us. You may also make a charitable donation, big or small, via Local Giving
